the still wind. they were tight. maybe up one. after august 11th when governor romney decided to double down on the republican plan to fund tax cuts for millionaires and big oil companies, the generics began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up one, two and the. then when todd akin in late august expressed those horrific thoughts and not what he said that bothered me but what he thought about some legitimacy to forms of rape, it widen even more then disclosures of the republican romping in the sea, the generics spread even more. independent voters were reminded how extreme the people are and that these people have priorities that would, in pack, end their medicare, in order to fun the tax cuts for millionaires. the more republican priorities are articulated the better we do. so in august, the nbc "wall street journal" generic had us up one. this week, we are up four in the generics. if they keep spreading if they get fife or six or more then we win back the house. direct correlation between the gen ir ache polling and the ability to win back the house and right no
tight. maybe up one could after august 11, when governor romney decided to double down on the republican plan to and medicare to fund tax cuts for millionaires and big oil companies, it began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up 1, 2 and 3. and then when todd aitken express' those horrific fox -- expressed those for fifth thoughts about rape, it raised it even more. and then independent voters in particular were reminded how extreme these people are and that these people have priorities that would in fact and in medicare in order to fund tax cuts for millionaires. the more republican ideas art articulated, the better we do in the polls. if the generics keep spreading, five or six or more, then we win back the house. there is a direct correlation between the generic pooling and our ability to win back the house. right now, it is going in the right direction. >> the emerging strategy seems to be attacking republicans -- attaching republicans to the department. you mentioned the reports on the house races. david wasserman pointed out that just 19 of the almost 90
. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end fund

edge. those polls are 7 points wrong . so when they show in ohio that mitt romney is down by 5. they are saying it is a tied race there and when this thing in virginia where i was here yesterday giving speeches. he is probably about five ahead. >> gretchen: sorry. >> they are waiting for demo grapics. >> gretchen: other pundits say debates don't matter. it might be a one point bounce and that type of thing. how would you respond. >> we have seen obama over many, many years but not seen romney. those of us in the business and republican debates did. but the independents and democrats haven't had a chance to see the guy. all they have heard the vilification of him in negative ads it is not so much obama's performance that structured the debate. it is romney's performance. the question is why was romney so good? >> steve: excellent. congratulations on your new book mr. morris. >> thank you, we'll talk about it next week . globall governorance taking over the globe. >> steve: i hate it when that happens. >> gretchen: see you next week. >> brian: next on the run down. oh, joe, here
to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to have a comeback in ohio, it started last night. >> president obama won last time, beating senator mccain by seven points. part of it was 66% of the vote among 18-29-year-old, a large percentage of latino voters, african-americans were like 95% to 4% or something like that. the african-american support is very strong. let's assume parity for this time. as you suggested, the turnout levels among latino voters and, i would add, young voters, is very much questionable. when i go on campuses, i cannot find a pulse. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table, registering. there is no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven- point margin becomes six or five or four, ticking turnout down among these two gr
at this point, romney's garbage man is voting for him. obama to me, he remained me of homer simpson rolling down the mountain and continually, no matter what he does, keeps hitting his head over and over and over again. every rock, it was -- he wanted to go. it was kind of sad. >> you know what it seemed like? mitt romney just -- didn't attack, but he was firm with him. no, mr. president, you're wrong. i didn't say that. those aren't the numbers. i don't think president obama has been spoken to like that in four years. >> no, he hasn't. >> flunkies say yes, sir, mr. president, you're right, mr. president. >> let me ask you a question, he says, romney says last night, this is why i think how can you give it a win to romney? he says, oh, my gosh, how can you say that i've been running on a plan to cut $5 trillion and give these tax cuts to the rich? wait a minute. that's exactly what you've been doing. how can you say that? he says, oh, i'm going to repeal dodd frank. oh, yeah, medicare will be a voucher. these are not good things for mitt romney. >> yeah. juan, you want to throw to your favorite
and this is "the five". one presidential debate down, two more to go issues plus a vp debate. almost 60 million people watched mitt romney crush president obama last night. twitter blew up, biggest political night ever. so what did you guys think? let's start it out. polling, you were excited last night? >> it was great. twitter was going crazy. honestly, mitt romney made president obama look silly and small. he was great. mitt romney was. president obama was bumbling. he looked like he didn't want to be there. we heard all those analogies today. but i found it interesting that michael moore blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different t
, firms go out of business. poll numbers go down for mitt romney, you know, even though lots of evidence to say tear not, the metrics for these polls are skewed, even so, people get scared, and they pull back, and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. ashley: does the romney campaign call the donors and say, hey -- >> reporter: absolutely. it's isolated now, but there's a worrisome beginnings of a trend. we should point out that we talked to the romney campaign. they basically said, listen, a lot of our people have given already, it makes sense they basically put, you know, spread their money around. we don't see that trend. i'm telling you, it's happening, and there's enough worry from people who raise money. now, those are overall numbers. we should point out that a lot of people say president obama spent a lot of that already, you know? that cash on hand is much more even. karl rove talked about that. but clearly, you know, romney has an issue here in the stretch. if, you know, if he doesn't do well, people poll, then it just builds on each other -- ashley: if they start to turn it a
romney's plan to the economy. >> he would double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place. ashley: we have the added and the facts the campaign conveniently left out. the nfl gets political, pro football owners and players making their voices heard on the campaign trail fulfilling from their bank account. joining us to talk politics and football in just moments. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves to shop online with her debit card, and so does bill, an identity thief who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accounts and stole her hard-earned money. now meet jack. after 40 years, he finally saved enough to enjoy retirement. angie, the waitress at jack's favorite diner, is also enjoying his retirement. with just a little information, she's opened up a credit line, draining the equity in jack's home. unfounately, millions of americans just like you learn all it may take is a little misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft, and no one helps stop it better than lifelock. see, ordinary credit monitoring servi
't worry, someone is finally cracking down on big bird. elmo has made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he is bringing the hammer down on "says mystery." >> five alleged backers about, have been extradited to the u.s. from britain after long-running legal battles. muslim cleric, abu hamza al- masri, and watch others arrived after the european court of human rights rejected their appeals. he's been years in prison in britain on a conviction of inciting racial hatred and soliciting murder. a federal grand jury indicted him in 2004 on allegations of supporting al qaeda and aiding a fatal kidnapping in yemen. his lawyers had appealed his a extradition to the u.s. by citing european statutes barring inhumane and degrading treatment. two others were arrested after the 1998 u.s. embassy bombings in north africa and had fought extradition since. the other two have been indicted on charges of supplying material to islamic militants in chechnya and to the taliban. babar ahmade two, is a british citizen. his supporters had waged a long campaign criticiz
is governor romney's numbers do not add up. i had to spend time last night trying to pin it down. the only way to pay for $5 trillion in the tax cuts and $2 trillion in the defense spending that the military says it does not need is by asking the middle-class to pay more. i refuse to do that. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or raising their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut, just to pay for more tax cuts that we cannot afford. i will never turn medicare into a voucher. governor romney doubled down on the proposal last night, and he is wrong. no american should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies. they should retire with the dignity they have earned. we will perform and strengthen medicare for a long haul, but reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more, and we will keep promise of social security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it. we will have a chance to talk about what is going on overseas, because our prosperity at home is linked t
in the rockies? mr. o'reilley sat down with one of mitt romney's farmer debate coaches and he had this to say about tonight's festivities. >> he has to make the public start blaming barak obama for the bad economic conditions. >> how do you do that? how do you swing the public over to blaming the president? how? >> that's the thing that they haven't done effectively -- as effectively as they need t. they've convinced the american people that the economy is bad. what they haven't convinced the american people is that the president's policies that have caused the economy. >> you do that by facts? >> absolutely. >> okay. so you just keep -- >> he's got to go policy by policy, policy i about policy and say, your stimulus bill created these economic conditions, which caused unemployment to be above 8% for 40 months and go through each policy he's done that caused the economy to go down. >> steve: by the way, that guy, brett o'donnel, will be on "fox & friends" tomorrow to analyze the debate. also interesting because the president has run a whole bunch of ads in the swing states that have really do
and friends first. it is october the 3rd. >> it is the final count down to president obama and mitt romney tonight. the first presidential debate taking place in denver, colorado. peter doocy is here. we are going to get right to it. he is live for us in washington with a preview. good morning, peter. >> good morning, heather. vice president biden was down in charlotte north carolina yesterday talking about tax policies and the differences between democrats and republicans when he came out and said the middle class has been buried since president obama took office. >> this is deadly ernst. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class has been buried for the last 4 years. how in the lord's name can they justify it? >> now instead of focusing solely on tonight's denver the obama campaign is doing damage control even though the vice president changed had. some of the harm done once to the strong middle class republicans are taking the comments and running with it. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years have been quote buried. we agree.
's policy for big, trickle-down government. >> this past hour, mitt romney's son, josh, met with reporters in the swing state of virginia. it's part of a day-long effort the campaign is calling super saturday, with volunteers going door to door in battleground states. president obama has no public events today. he will head to california tomorrow, where he is expected to tout the new jobs number, 7.8%, and some big fund-raising numbers out today. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september, the highest single-month total so far. more on all these stories throughout the next two hours. >>> the campaign focus shifts a bit next week to the vice presidential nominees. paul ryan and joe biden will face off in their only debate next thursday night. paul ryan has just left his four-day debate camp. he is heading back to wisconsin for a fund-raiser tonight. and as for the vice president, we check in with msnbc news campaign embed carrie dan. she's embedded with vice president joe biden's team. carrie, vice president biden's schedule shows him to be in wilmington, delaware, r
romney is going to let wall street run wild again, but he is going to bring the hammer down on "sesame street." you want me save big bird? that. >> was president obama yesterday afternoon in cleveland. >>> i was out in utah full-time. i had no responsibility for management at bain capital. >> mitt romney wasn't questioned about bain capital in his latest debate, but he was in a 2002 debate in a governor's race. we'll talk the woman who took the issue to him ten years ago. >>> and up next, the unemployment rate nationwide may have dropped below 8%. but in some of the battlegrounds where this election will be decided, the unemployment rate is still way above 8, and it could affect how people vote. next, we'll take you live to one of those battlegrounds. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best t
. >> well, i felt for governor romney the moment he used the line trickle down government. that's a phrase hadn't used before. you saw instantly people started retweeting it and picking up on it legitimate break through moment in describing the president's philosophy and even this next day governor romney started using that on his speech. >> interesting. nick, let's play it for viewers in case they missed it. >> the president has a view s.e. very similar to the view he had four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> you like that because it's a catchy phrase? >> no. it's more than just a catchy phrase though. that's more than a scripted line. in a nutshell it synopsized how governor romney feels about the president's philosophy on government. the fact that he used it the next day in his stump speech and probably use it going forward means it has resonance and catching on with the base. >> nic, you are presidential historian, how do you describe his lacklust
ryan is talking about. >> sitting down with fox news sundays ryan telling chris what he thinks romney needs to do at the first debate to win the white house. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that's what we are doing. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can either have dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or have a stag innocent opportunity to fosters dependency. we can stick to the failed policies of the last four years and next four years. stagnation verses growth, dependency verses opportunity and upward mobility. that's the classic choice clear difference we are offering. what we hope people get out of the de bite is the choice. i think people will see what kind of a president is he going to be? this particular debate that's what matters and all of the debates. i know what. obama has done all of the empty promises and broken promise misses i know about the ugly stagnant economy what is mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track. >> it is what laura ingram is talking about. what she thinks w
on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like europe, we know what happened there. number two we are spending $9 billion every week just paying interest on this debt, about a quarter of it goes overseas. and number 3, we are paying for this debt by printing money. so here is the question, allison, what happens when we stop printing as we inevitably will at some point, what happens when people stop lending us the money because we've borrowed so much. what happens when the markets say you can't afford this. no mas, no more lending? at that point the bubble bur
are two-days away from the first presidential debate. final preps are underway for a mile high show down. doug luzader is live from washington. >>> it kind of borders on the surge. these guys start heaping praise on one another. to hear the president tell it as he did last night mitt romney his opponent has skills he can't match when it comes to debating. the top political ad viseor piles it on. >> challengers do well in this debate. >> presidented owe bhaum is a gifted speaker with a proven debate track record. the loan exception may be new jersey governor chris christie the only campaign surrogate on either side was willing to predict his guy would win. >> every time he has come through on the debate performing we are going to be shaking our heads saying it's a brand new race. >> it you have one event each week the last one this date in october. >>> doug luzader thank you so much from washington. wednesday was a big talker. that's what presidential nominee paul ryan is talking about. >> sitting down with fox news sundays ryan telling chris what he thinks romney needs to do at the first
a different party and you will get different answer. but the clock is ticking down. governor romney getting plenty of advice on how he should approach the president on that stage. the presidential debate commission -- the two men with stand side by side. critics a predicting the left-leaning media will portray romney as the loser no matter how he performs. bill, welcome back to the program. some are saying no matter what governor romney does tonight the headlines in the newspapers tomorrow will be -- you know, romney struggles to make it case. romney's campaign is in trouble. what say you? >> reporter: i think there are two different dispositions here. i'm irish. when i watch the debate i tend to think my guy lost unless he really creamed the other guy. way i think of these debates and the mainstream channels handle them is like the music man. president obama is like professor harold hill. he sold these people all these band uniforms and instruments and he has this krissy system that doesn't teach them how to play. then it's a climate i can scene at the end. the town, the mayor, they think
't drink. yeah, we get it! the debates will come down to a few key sound bytes romney has been memorizing and practicing. >> oh, god. >> stephanie: a series of zingers that his team has written for him. >> two peanuts were walking down the street and one of them had salt on it. [ crickets chirping ] no. >> stephanie: romney has practiced delivering the lines on aides since august. aides who presumably are paid to laugh at the same line. oh my god, that was better. by the way nothing like repetition to make it funny. seamless delivery already. sidesplitting but then if you've heard it like the tenth time. there was a story about how much he pays his aides. obama's staff is like -- twice the size. and now i understand why romney's overpaying. he's a, not a very good businessman and b, because they have to listen to the same stupid jokes over and over. >> a horse with a long face walks into a bar and the bartender says why are you here? [ crickets chirping ] >> stephanie: no, mitt. why do you think it's comedy my
stuttering, i am wondering if he is playing cat and mouse with romney. the only way for him to go now is down. but in the upcoming two debates, obama could come on very strong. and this could be a planned strategy. thank you for taking my call. host: thank you for making it. ann coulter has been a good morning -- is going to be a good morning co-host for good morning america next week. -- ann romney is going to be a good morning co-host for good morning america next week. abc has been looking for celebrity guests to fill in for robin roberts who is on medical leave. next is a call from georgia, a democrat. caller: good morning. what i wanted to remind people is that -- we have a great country. and we need to look at the people from third world countries where they do not get any assistance, no help. and people is always crying about government -- that government is too much in their life, if we take government out of our lives, we will not be in a place where will be a position judging people in the third world countries. if you have a home, i want to remind you that government help to to get
faceoff between president obama and governor romney. jamie: the latest search for a killer who gunned down a young border patrol agent. >> the tears flowed freely thinking about his wife and children who will grow up without their father with them. bill: a multi million dollar federal information sharing program from the department of homeland security. a scathing senate report says the program has done little to make the nation secure since 9/11. lawmakers are demanding answers with the homeland security department and steve centanni is live in washington on this. i said millions, it might be billions. tell us more. what did this report uncover? >> reporter: the investigation by the senate homeland security and government affairs committee found lavish experiencing that contributed little to national security. the program was designed in the wake of 9/11 to help coordinate communication between state, local and federal law enforcement agency. here is how the homeland security chief talked about it earlier this year about the 77 centers around the country. >> it's the heart of our preventi
this country get hit with another round of top-down economics. one of the main reasons we had this crisis is because big banks on wall street were allowed to make big bets with other people's money and governor romney wants to roll back the rules we put in place to stop that behavior? that's not going to happen. that is not going to happen. [applause] one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil i
: we're going to get the chance to see ann romney a bit later this week. martha sits down with her one-on-one later this week. you will see that interview in its entirety come wednesday morning on "america's newsroom". patti ann: california's governor is taking action as drivers deal with more record breaking prices at pump. prices soaring to an all-time high this weekend receiving an average of $4.67 for a gallon of regular. that number spiking 50 cents in just one week. california drivers are struggling with the jump. >> i think prices are ridiculous. >> people working, you know, they need a break. it's too high, it's way too high. >> i try not to drive unless i really have to. patti ann: stu varney is the host of "varney & company" and he joins us now with more on this spike in gas prices. good morning stu. >> good morning patti ann. the news this morning that the spike appears to have stopped. the other side of the coin there has been no retreat in gas prices in california. as you mentioned 4.67 is the statewide average. most calfornians when they go to fill up are paying $100 for
give us some encouragement it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. so in virginia romney said while the rate is falling he thinks it's because more people have stopped looking for jobs. the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today our unemployment rate would be around 11%. jack welch doesn't believe the latest unemployment rate is of real and he thinks that the chicago way has something to do with that. he suggests that the numbers have been manipulated for political reasons he said unbelievable job numbers these chicago guys will do anything, cannot debate so change job numbers. mitch romney reverses himself on the 47% comments initially sank his remarks were not elegantly stated but in an interview last night he said if the 4747 percent, up during the debate he would have said he was just completely wrong. we are live at the scene. good evening about three dozen or so bikers in france in a family of new towns and are actually here right now at the location where tha
as individuals by ourselves. i just wanted to say that headlines down there in denver or romney wins, i thought that was very disingenuous of the press in denver. there was a report in the morning that romney light. that was disgraceful, what was going on in there during the day, -- during the debate, him lying like that. i want the people to know that the press was not there to do their job. they were there to sway opinion and i thought that was disgraceful for the denver press to do that. host: thank you so much. back to facebook -- the post from community builders, san bernardino -- host: if you like to post on facebook about the role of government, it is facebook.com and find the c-span side. next, a democrat. caller: good morning and thank you for the opportunity. first of all, a lot of these smart people out there in the c- span family stole my thunder on a lot of points. but i think, basically, we need a moderate-to-strong federal government. because, you know, i see these right wing nuts out there in the country crying about states' rights and that they want less federal government. you
,000. that is a fairly significant difference because it does have about a $1 trillion cost. on top of that, gov. romney wants to reduce individual rates by 20% across the board and also reduce the corporate rates down to 25%. president obama has proposed reducing them to 28%. guest: i think that is a fair description. they do have some significant differences. host: we heard a bit in the debate last week about where mitt romney stands on his tax plan. here is a headline coming to us. in the fog of numbers, there is little tax clarity from obama and romney. $5 trillion, whether or not tax cuts will equal $5 trillion. there is a difference in this number. guest: the $5 trillion is the gross cost of reducing rates 20% across the board. the. gov. romney made is it is unfair to call it a tax cut because he intends to offset the cost through base broadening. i think one thing that was interesting is although gov. romney has proposed 20%, he did not actually mentioned that number in the debate. i think what he did emphasize instead is he was not going to add to the deficit or increase taxes on the middle clas

was calling to say i think romney is running on his ego. what he has been talking about all through this campaign was just taking care of the rich and not try to help the ones down below. there are so many people that need help. when obama bought into office, he already had that debt. it takes time for a person to -- romney should know -- it takes time to settle that big of a debt in more than four years. it will take more for us to get out of the dead that we are in. i think we should give president obama a chance for the next four years and let him prove himself. everybody is fighting against him. the first year the republicans said they want to stop obama. everybody should have a chance at life. they should give him a chance to prove he can do the job. he has been trying to do the job. >> next is don in houston who is a republican. >> hello, i am actually in colleyville, tx. i am a republican. i felt like obama has had three and a half years to basically do this. he has forced obamacare down our throats. nancy pelosi basically said that we would know what is in it when it is appr
